A new ‘robotic camera’ has taken the largest and most detailed photo ever of New York City.
The photo has a resolution of 120,000 megapixels – so detailed that you can zoom in for a close look at the Statue of Liberty, even though it’s just a tiny speck in the distance of the main photo.
EarthCam's new robotic X80 camera system combines a robust camera housing and powerful software with a Sony a7R IV to make huge panoramic images possible.

It’s the work of the new GigapixelCam X80 from EarthCam, which creates hi-res panoramas. You can ‘tour’ the photo yourself at Earthcam.net.’
Do you remember what the first camera you owned was?
